Bring Recycling to Downtown Birmingham

Gradually Green's first mission is to bring paper recycling to the streets and establishments of downtown Birmingham.

If we want people to think about what they are consuming and wasting in terms of resources, this thought process can't just take place in the home, it has to take place everywhere we live. This has to include where we work, walk, gather, and run errands.

The Plan

Gradually Green would like to see paper recycling bins next to our sidewalk waste bins, in our stores and businesses. Gradually Green would supply the bins, and organize a pick up route peopled by volunteers, local Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts needing recurrent service projects, local schools and environmental clubs and groups. The idea is to work with organizations so that this route can be handed down sustainability until the eventuality of local government stepping up and providing a recycling truck pick up route.

We are right now in discussion with local business owners and local government leaders, as establishments come officially on board they will be highlighted on a map on this page.

 

 

A big part of Gradually Green's mission statement is putting in place small changes that make big differences. Small changes can be implemented faster, get communities thinking about living greener, and gain momentum.

Why Birmingham?

Birmingham is the community Gradually Green was founded in, that Gradually Green currently belongs to. We hope that these changes will set precedence and spread to other communities as Gradually Green Grows.

Birmingham already has recycling for it's residents, but none organized by the community for it's establishments. Many local establishments in downtown Birmingham promote their recyclable containers and disposables (disposable cups, bags, food containers, newspapers, etc.). But giving someone something recyclable with out providing a place to properly dispose of it is futile, and at worst becomes gimmicky.
